Part E - Education Professions Development Act of 1967.
Reitz, J. Wayne
The first funding of fellowships, institutes, and special projects under Part E of the Education Professions Development Act of 1967 was announced in January 1967. The Act is designed to help train "persons who are serving or preparing to serve as teachers, administrators, or educational specialists in institutions of higher education." The actual amount made available was $6,900,000, of which $2,000,000 was for fellowships and $4,700,000 for institutes and special projects. Under these grants, fellowship and training programs will be conducted at higher education institutions in 45 states and the District of Columbia in Summer 1969 and during the 1969-70 academic year. A large amount of the funds will train personnel for community colleges and support training directed to the needs of the disadvantaged. For fiscal year 1970, the President's budget message includes $5,000,000 for institutes and special projects, and an equal amount for fellowships under the same legislation. (WM)
